Mas­ter­class for women of­fered

Pilbara News - - Business - Ali­cia Per­era

A new mas­ter­class start­ing next month is of­fer­ing pro­fes­sional women spe­cialty train­ing to hone their busi­ness skills and con­fi­dence.

Zest E-Biz owner Ky­lah Mor­ri­son and cor­po­rate com­mu­ni­ca­tions ex­perts coach Vi­o­let Dhu will be run­ning their first joint Pil­bara Women in Lead­er­ship Mas­ter­class at Ibis Styles Kar­ratha on March 3 and 4.

The class will in­volve two days of tai­lored work­shops where they will dis­cuss the the­ory and prac­tice of lead­er­ship styles with a se­lect group of guests.

Mrs Mor­ri­son said she and Mrs Dhu had de­vel­oped the event in re­sponse to a sur­vey of their con­tacts, mainly pro­fes­sional women in the Pil­bara, where they in­di­cated the skills they wanted to grow as new lead­ers.

“We pitched this mas­ter­class at emerg­ing lead­ers or peo­ple who are in­flu­enc­ing oth­ers and look­ing to up­skill,” she said. “It is re­ally that new to lead­er­ship de­mo­graphic that is look­ing for this con­nec­tion with other peo­ple.”

It will be the first time the two women have run a busi­ness event to­gether.

Mrs Mor­ri­son said it was par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant to hold a spe­cialised women-in-busi­ness mas­ter­class like this in the Pil­bara.

“We work in such a male-dom­i­nated area that a lot of the time you feel like you’ve got to be a man to suc­ceed,” she said. “The idea of this mas­ter­class is you don’t need to be a man, you just need to know your own strengths, be com­fort­able in your­self and be au­then­tic, and then you’ll come across with a stronger pres­ence which builds con­fi­dence.”

The work­shop’s early bird dis­count rate ex­pires on Sun­day, Jan­uary 31, though reg­is­tra­tions are open through­out Fe­bru­ary.
